A further 150 players have registered in the last week (bringing the total close to 1,800) reflecting continued momentum as we approach the scheduled start of the season – more to come on this soon following on from our article yesterday:
Civil Service CC continues to lead the way with the biggest movers this week being Adamstown CC, Pembroke CC and Finglas CC. The latter is showing significant growth in numbers over 2020 as it settles into its new home at Poppintree Park for 2021. Further good news is that 6% of registrations to-date relate to people registering to play in CL competitions for the first time with a further 5% reflecting players who last played in 2019 returning for the 2021 season.

Again Finglas CC remains in the top 5 well ahead of many longer established clubs:

Of significance is that 17 clubs have so far recorded female adult registrations which suggests material growth is starting to emerge from the various initiatives overseen by Isobel Joyce as CL Women’s & Girls Development Officer.
